I’m back again with another French Bulldog products post. You all loved my last one, Frenchie Must Haves for Heat so I thought I would share some more general products. My puppy is now almost 2 years old and I seriously can’t believe it. This is such a magical breed and these dogs have the funniest personalities. Frenchies also can be prone to health issues. Most of these products are geared toward setting them up for success.
This ramp was actually a more recent purchase. I noticed Sky would jump off my bed and land really hard. French Bulldogs are more susceptible to things like IVDD and hip/joint problems so I knew we needed to find a solution. I love this ramp, it’s not the cutest in my room but it provides her a gentler way to get off the bed and she seems to be okay with it!
Ear & Eye Cleaner
Finding good products for your pet is literally the best thing you can do. Sky got an ear infection around 6 months old because of those giant and open ears, so we started cleaning her ears out 1-2 times a week. This ear cleaner was recommended by our vet so we love it. We put in in her ear, massage it, then let her shake it out and we take a cotton round and wipe out any excess.
As for eye cleaner, I honestly never thought twice about her tear stains until around January of this year. I noticed they were getting a lot of buildup and even seemed red on the skin. We started wiping her eyes with medicated wipes from out vet once a day. Now, we use these every other day just to keep out infection and bacteria. It’s important to look for eye wipes that are safe to use near the eyes and are anti microbial so they actually work and help to seal out moisture.
I almost cringe every time I think about how we used to drive with her in the car. I would just let her sit on my lap in the front seat and I now realize how dangerous that is. Dogs really need to be restrained. If you get in an accident, you don’t want them thrown from the car. We are OBSESSED with this Pup Saver car seat. It was pricy but it is actually crash tested and rear facing. I feel so great knowing that she’s as protected as a baby would be. This is probably my top french bulldog products.
Travel Water Bowls
The one thing I tell everyone is that Frenchies get overheated quickly. I always make sure to have water bowls in whatever car I’m in and fresh water. After going in to a store or walking around she needs some water. I love these with a lid from Amazon. These help to keep the car clean because once she’s done we can cover it up.
This is a big one because Frenchies really can’t be too overweight. It puts a lot of stress on their bodies and can flare up a lot of the health issues we’re trying to prevent. I like to look for low calorie treats that have good ingredients. My favorite brand to buy for her is Bocce’s Bakery. These treats are only 4 calories and have good ingredients that I would eat myself.
Another pro tip that I like to do in the summer is swap out treats for fresh fruits or veggies. I find that things like watermelon and cucumbers help to refresh her in the summer and keep her cool. You can even make your own puppy pops which not only are good treats but can help to keep your pup cool in the summer.
I honestly could go on and on about French Bulldog products. I am obsessed with Sky and am always looking for ways to make her life better. Frenchies are such interesting little characters but you need to make sure you really know what you’re getting into before you get one.
Let me know if you have any dog products you can’t live without because I am always looking to try new things!
